30.10.29 Enumerations [fs.enum] Enum path​::​format [fs.enum.path.format]

This enum specifies constants used to identify the format of the character sequence, with the meanings listed in Table 122.

Table 122 — Enum path​::​format
native_­format The native pathname format.
generic_­format The generic pathname format.
auto_­format The interpretation of the format of the character sequence is implementation-defined. The implementation may inspect the content of the character sequence to determine the format. [Note: For POSIX-based systems, native and generic formats are equivalent and the character sequence should always be interpreted in the same way. end note]
